Sustainable energy is a key priority for the EIB in Africa. Almost a quarter of recent EIB operations in sub-Saharan Africa, and over a third of recent operations in North Africa, support the energy sector.
Depuis janvier 2013, la BEI a mis en oeuvre un plan de relance européen qui se concrétise en France par une progression de 80 % de son activité, passant de 4,3 milliards en 2012 à plus de 7,8 milliards d’EUR cette année.
The study, carried out by the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management, is based on a literature review, surveys of small entrepreneurs and consultations with government officials, staff of supervisory institutions, international donors as well as financial institutions in Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia. It may serve as a basis for pilot actions to test innovative approaches in enhancing access to finance for SMEs in the Mediterranean partner countries.
This “Med-ELENA” study, funded by the FEMIP Trust Fund, was commissioned in order to assess in more detail how the Bank could support the needs of nascent energy efficiency and small scale renewable energy investments in the region.
The EIB publishes a wide range of brochures aimed at both professionals and the general public. Information published in these documents and on the WEB sites can be freely reproduced if the source is mentioned and information excerpts are not modified.
